@cafedisco are you talking about Expecting Better? The author of that book definitely discards most of the food hype based on statistical likelihood of it actually causing a problem.
@TheJerilu was it you that mentioned a book about food freedom in pregnancy? It was a while ago but I don't remember the thread and not sure how to search it without knowing the name...I'd be curious to look into that if it was you!I'm all about reducing the rules, and therefore anxiety, during pregnancy!
TheJerilu said:Pulling a quote from an old post of mine, here's what the actual likelihood is in the US:When I say "runs a risk" I mean a grand total of 1600 people get sick from listeria per year in the US, per the CDC. That's from the total population, not pregnant people. That means 0.000005% of the US population (318.9million) get sick from it. One in seven listeria cases are pregnant women. I literally can't show the percentage of likelihood that a pregnant woman in the U.S. gets listeria without jumping into scientific notation; that's how rare it is.
